Ruminant BioTech is on a mission to develop a methane-busting solution, which is viable and highly effective in pasture-grazed farming systems, and it can also be used in intensive-farming systems such as beef feedlots and shed-housed dairy farms.
Improving on nature through science.
Minimum 70% methane knockdown over six months.
Every cow with a bolus for six months is equivalent to one car off the road for one year.
Our bolus will slow release a blocker to the production of the methane from methanogens.
The reduction in methane emissions from one dairy cow over the course of a year saves emissions equivalent to an 18-hour, non-stop flight.
Ruminant BioTech’s solution is a naturally occurring organic compound that is proven to be powerful and highly effective in reducing the amount of methane produced by ruminants. The compound is synthesised to ensure reliable, high-quality and pure supply. Our team of scientists has found a way to deliver a controlled release of the active ingredient over a sustained period of time.
The delivery system is a bolus (a capsule designed to sit in the largest stomach of a ruminant animal), which releases a constant, and consistent, dose of active ingredient. This means there are no peaks and troughs in efficacy; the production of methane is constantly suppressed.
Current testing shows the Ruminant BioTech bolus is delivering methane knockdown of an excess of 90% over a period of three months. We are continuing to refine the product to deliver methane knockdown for up to six months, with a minimum methane reduction of 70% over that time.
If we can treat 25% of the world's ruminants with our product, the net reduction in GHG emissions equates to removing 300 million cars from the road globally.
